This is a older pattern that has been on my Etsy site for a while. I had the opportunity this weekend to punch and color code it. It is punched using a three strand Red Original CTR needle. Using three strand DMC floss for the detail and Valdani #12 perle cotton for the background. I do suggest using the same needle two strand for the little blue birds.
It's a beautiful day today, I'm in need to head outside..were hitting near 80 degrees in Pittsburgh. Fresh air and sunshine coming my way. Hoping the same for you!
Happy Hand work!
